Pacific 2020

The university's strategic plan, Pacific 2020, was developed in 2012 in response to the changing landscape of higher education: shifting student demographics and expectations, increased demand for educational accountability and affordability, and the need for new pedagogical models.

It provides a vision of responsive change while preserving our commitment to the "Pacific Experience" of high-quality programs, shared values, and a commitment to student-centered education.

Pacific 2020R

The university refreshed its strategic plan in 2017 to create Pacific 2020R, which focuses on two themes, supported by five priorities:

  1. Students with Purpose
  2. Agile and Dynamic Growth.

These themes and priorities complement one another and put students — current and future — at the center of our work.
